We have found the factory gearing to be inadequate even on stock vehicles in many cases. By re-gearing your diffs with a Nitro Gear Package you can restore performance and economy by optimizing the RPM range your engine runs at. We’ve already provided gears for hundreds of the 2016+ Tacoma, with excellent feedback and reports of much better drivability, performance, and economy. Many say that they love that their truck is not constantly shifting, and just feels “right”.
Here are some rough recommendations based on tire sizes for the average daily driver / weekend warrior: 31"-33” 4.88 34" or larger 5.29 (Great for especially loaded trucks, or towing. Also ideal for 4 cylinder trucks)
Testimonial: If you have been driving your 2016 Tacoma with oversized tires, than you are probably disappointed with the new engine combo, but with proper gearing they are actually very nice. We recently fitted the first stet to the XOVERLAND.COM 2016 Tacoma, which is fully outfitted and includes an AT Overland Habitat (camper). Rachelle and Rhonda complained that the new truck was constantly shifting and burning through a ton of fuel, that it "just didn’t feel right.” Installing the new 4.88 ratio Nitro gears resulted in an immediate improvement in drive-ability and later a 3-4 mpg increase on their 10 hour drive home. You can see the video from the shop floor here at the Expedition Overland facebook page.

To make it easier for everyone the experts at Nitro are introducing an industry first- “Gear Packages” for many popular 4x4 applications. One part number. One price. One click away.
